(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

find the max and min of f(x,y)=x^2y, constraint x^2+y^2=1

2. Relevant equations

None.

3. The attempt at a solution

I found that possible points use the procedure of the method of lagrange multiplier, I got [tex](\pm\sqrt{2/3}, \pm\sqrt{1/3}[/tex] so 4 points total.

But do I have to check the end point on the constraint? like points (-1, 0), (1, 0), (0, 1), (0, -1)?

and y this latex thing won't work? help plz. lol
